about your flight

You will rendezvous with your Big Black Bird professional pilot and crew at a predetermined launch and/or meeting site.  Upon arrival at the launch site your experience begins.  Your pilot and crew will begin with an orientation and general information regarding current weather conditions, pre-flight planning, the flight, aircraft and your crew.  We are always happy to answer any questions you may have while explaining the processes and preparation for your flight.  The pilot and crew will begin assembling the system while also completing necessary preflight checks. The hum of the inflator fan, the lively colors of our aircraft/balloon and the roar of the burners will soon be filling the air. Our well trained, skilled team ensures a safe and comfortable outing for all passengers and crew. 

Burners roar  -  then silence. Almost as if in slow-motion, gently, the balloon lifts into the light breeze which peacefully carries you above the rooftops, chimneys and treetops.  As you drift along you feel no wind for you have become the wind. From tree tops to magnificent panoramic views, your experienced and knowledgeable pilot will act as your guide for your in-flight experience.  He welcomes questions from his passengers and will be quick to point out local points of interest and areas of extraordinary beauty.  The balloon stands over 60 feet tall, 55 feet around and has an internal air capacity of 80,000 cubic feet!  That's big!  The balloon will safely carry the pilot and up to three passengers.  Enchantment, romance and excitement fill every minute of your graceful journey as you experience flight. . . .

Your actual in-flight time will be approximately one hour - your memories will last a lifetime!  Your first words following a gentle touch-down will probably be, "let's do it again!"  One of our recent passengers said it best when she said, "Oh my, what a wonderful experience, if I'd have known it would be that spectacular I'd have done it much sooner - everybody has to try this at least once  in their  lifetime!"   Once you've been set   gently back into the loving arms of   mother-earth   you,   your    pilot   and    crew   will celebrate the flight with the traditional champagne toast, soft-drinks and the balloonists' prayer.  Your flight will also come with a commemorative collectors pin.  We also offer specially edited video footage of your flight for an additional $95 as well as Big Black Bird t-shirts, baseball caps and more also at an additional fee (please see our online store for selection, availability and additional information.
